2018 Kaohsiung City Gangshan District Health Center: Go out and embrace nature outdoors

Posted on: 2019-01-24  Posted by: Health Management Section
The Kaohsiung City Gangshan District Health Center continued to undertake the program of community health building of the Health Promotion Administration. This year, it expanded to plan a series of health promotion activities for the elderly in the Gangshan District. It was organized by the Cheng Xiang Village Office and the Community Development Association on July 4. The program was named "Healthy Senior Citizen Leisure Tour - Community Nostalgia Tour", and invited nearly 80 senior citizens aged 65 and over to leave their home and walk around the Mazu Temple with more than 300 years of history and plenty of antique historical buildings. They also went to the Chiayi National Palace Museum for a light cultural tour. Through the tour, the elderly not only visited the historical sites, but also learned about the cultural relics in the Gangshan area.
 
It was a cultural and spiritual feast for the elders of the community to walk around and enjoy the outdoors. The department of health encourages the elderly to participate in community health activities and increase their kinetic energy. In addition to reducing the risk of falls, they can also effectively delay disability and dementia. Health promotion activities can be consulted at the Gangshan District Health Center in Kaohsiung City (07-6212015)
